One day a man whose office was un

he had the exact time. "Just a mo

battered silver watch from a vest
pocket, looked at it, put it back and
then took a pencil out of another
pocket and jotted down something on
the back of an onvelojc.
Next he produced a second silver
watch from his trousers pocket, looked

Demsstic Life In England In the Time
of Henry VIII.
In that remarkably minute chronicle
of domestic life iu England in the
time of Henry VIII., Tusser's "Five
Hundred Points of Good Husbandry,'
the learned and pious author seems
to take it for granted that the only
way of dealing with maidservants is
to thrash them unmercifully.
He tells us in his Inimitable doggerel
that "a maid must be forced to be
cleanly" or she is to be "made to cry
creak." Mistresses are advised "to go
about with a holly wand in their hand,
although they may not always have
occasion to use It, and to pay home
when they flght" that Is to say,
thrash "but not to be always chid
ing." As regards the laundry, the
domestic serfs are "warned to take
heed when they wash or run in the
lash and to wash well, wring well and
beat well, so that if any lack beat
ing it will be themselves."
As for the unhappy Cicely, the dairy
maid, she is to cry "creak" that is to
say, to be thrashed if her cheese Is
"hoven" or puffed up, and If the
cheese be tough Cicely Is to have "a
crash.' If the cheese be spotted
Cicely Is to be amended by the bayes,
and If It be too full of whey the
wretched dairymaid is to bare "a
dressing.'' Finally, If any maoots are
found In the cheese, "mistress Is to be
Cicely by and by."
More people, men and women, are
suffering with kidney and bladder
trouble than ever before, and each
and each year more of them turn for
quick relief and permanent benefit to
Foley's Kidney Remedy, which has
proven itself to be one of the most
effective remedies for kidney and blad
der ailments, that medical science has

Telephone shopping has become a habit with millions
of women, because it is the most comfortable way, sav
ing time and trouble in making long trips down town.
The modern housewife demands a Bell telephone,
because it not only reaches her local shops but connects
her with every large city in the country.
Bell service is employed in all the details of every
day life, sometimes as a necessity, sometimes as a con
venience, but always as a time and trouble saver.
